Its Thaipusam la dei! 大宝森节快乐

Thaipusam- ‘’Thai’’ is the name of the month; ‘’Pusam’’ means when the moon is the brightest. Thaipusam is all about faith, endurance, and penance. It is the biggest festival for Hindus where they celebrate when the moon is full in the Tamil month of Thai (last week of January or beginning of February). It is a colorful event, which held for 3 to 4 days. Hindus celebrate to show their appreciation to Lord Murugan, who was the ‘’God of war’’. It acknowledges that Lord Murugan defeated the evil forces.

大宝森节是个关于信仰,耐力和忏悔的一个节日。这是印度教徒其中一个最慎重和盛大的节日。印度教徒庆祝以示感谢他们的神-穆卢干。穆卢干是个勇于打败邪恶的一位勇士, 而这个节日是来纪念祂的。大宝森节会在每一年一月的最后一周或2月初举办,而这个节日会持续3至4天。

 

Devotees will prepare themselves 48 days before the festival. The devotees purge themselves of all mental and physical impurities. During the preparation, they will only take one vegetarian meal per day and 24 hours before Thaipusam.

Devotees will prepare themselves by following strict purification austerities such as:

  1. Shaving of the head
  2. Transcendence of desire
  3. Sexual abstinence
  4. Bathing in cold water
  5. Sleeping on the floor
  6. Constant prayers

信徒们会用48天来准备自己而迎接这个节日。他们要以最纯洁的身心来迎接大宝森节,因此他们会在这48天里以每日吃一餐素食来准备自己。

除了吃素,信徒们也会以别的方式来准备自己。例如:

  1. 剃头
  2. 超越所有的欲望
  3. 禁止性行为
  4. 以冷水洗澡
  5. 睡在地板上
  6. 持续地祈祷

 

On the actual day of Thaipusam, all the devotees will prepare themselves spiritually with a last strict vegetarian diet and extensive prayer before performing the acts of thanksgiving. They believed when the mind is free of material worth and the body free from physical pleasures can a devotee undertake the sacred task without feeling any pain, such as carrying a kavadi and walk from one temple to another. Some devotees commit to an extreme sacrifice, which known as ‘Vel Kavadi’. Devotees pierce their bodies, cheeks, and tongues with vel skewers. There were also some devotees who did not commit to such extreme sacrifices as shown in the second picture below. The purpose of undertake such sacrifices are to get blessings from Lord Murugan on behalf of their loved ones or to balance their spiritual debt.

大宝森节的那一天,信徒们会在庆祝前吃最后一餐素食和持续地向他们的穆卢干神祈祷。他们深信当他们的身心纯洁,他们能在呈现‘’赎罪舞’’ 时不承受任何的痛苦。‘’赎罪舞’’是大宝森节的其中一项环节。信徒们会把穆卢干神象的铁串刺在身体而来顶着游行。有些信徒也会在脸颊和舌头上刺上铁串。这项是个极端的‘’赎罪舞’’。除此以外,有些信徒只呈现普通的‘’赎罪舞’’。他们会把牛奶铁桶顶在头上来游行。信徒相信当他们呈现这个‘’赎罪舞’’时,他们的亲人能得到祝福和能清除自己的罪孽。

 

The festival of Thaipusam was brought to Malaysia in the 1800s when Indian immigrants started to work on the Malaysia rubber estates and government offices. It was first celebrate in Batu Caves by a small population of Indians, and it had increase to more than a million of Hindus gather in Batu Caves during Thaipusam in recent years. Besides than Hindus, other races and westerners could also be found at Batu Caves during the festival. The night before Thaipusam, Hindus will gather at the Sri Mahamariaman Temple along Jalan Tun HS Lee, which located at Chinatown/Petaling Street area. From there they will leave around midnight on a 15 kilometer (approximately 8 hour) walk towards the Batu Caves where they will arrive the next morning. Then they will climb 272 steps from the bottom to the top of Batu Caves to say prayer to Lord Murugan.

马来西亚信徒们是在19世纪时开始庆祝大宝森节,而黑风洞是首个举办这个节日的地点。这个节日是由印度移民者开始举办的。他们多数是橡胶园工人或者是政府人员。参与这节日的人数从少数增加之现今的百万以上的人数。除了印度同胞,在现场也可以见到别的种族和外国人。大宝森节的前一晚,信徒们会在唐人街/茨厂街的马里安曼兴都庙聚集。在半夜时,他们会开始从那儿步行到黑风洞。这行程大概需要花8个小时来完成。当他们到达黑风洞时,他们会爬272层楼梯而达到最顶楼里向穆卢干神献上他们的感恩与祈祷。

 

TagCourse would like to wish every students of Hindu faith a HAPPY THAIPUSAM!

在此,TagCourse预祝各位学生大宝森节快乐

Federal Territory Day in Malaysia. 马来西亚 联邦直辖区日。

When to celebrate?

It’s the birthday of Kuala Lumpur, Labuan, and Putrajaya. This memorable day was known as Federal Territory Day, which celebrated on the 1st February of every year. This celebration took place on the three different states, Kuala Lumpur, Labuan, and Putrajaya. This special day marks the anniversary of the formation of Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory, which took place in 1st February, 1974. Labuan became the second federal territory on 17th May, 1984. While Putrajaya was the third to become federal territory on 1st February, 2001.

几时庆祝?

2月1日是马来西亚首都吉隆坡纳闽,和布城的大日子,这一天也被称为联邦直辖区日。联邦直辖区日这一天是来纪念这3大地区成为联邦直辖区的一天。吉隆坡是在1974年2月1日首个成为联邦直辖区。纳闽是在1984年5月17日第二区加入成为联邦直辖区。而布城在2001年1月2日成为最后一个联邦直辖区。

 

Why celebrate?

Originally, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya came under the state of Selangor, and Labuan was under the state of Sabah. The main purpose of the change was due to the events surrounding the 1969 elections and the riots that followed. By changing able to reduce the clashes between the federal and Selangor state governments. While Labuan joined to become federal territory due to Sabah ceded Labuan to the federal government which later been accessed to a federal territory.

Each of the state works on different things, such as Kuala Lumpur was the capital of Malaysia, while Labuan was the offshore International Financial Centre, and Putrajaya was the administrative capital.

Each year since year 2007, a different main theme has been celebrated generally to do with citizens, unity, progress and prosperity. While year 2008 onwards, different awards, decorations and medals have been given to selected citizens for their contributions within the federal territories.

为何庆祝?

在还未成为联邦直辖区前,吉隆坡布城是由雪兰莪州政府来管理的,而纳闽是属于沙巴州里的一个小区。什么原因让这三大区要独立呢?这是因为1969年大选后所发生的混乱而导致吉隆坡布城要成为独立的地区。而纳闽成为联邦直辖区的原因是在1984年时,沙巴州把纳闽转让给联邦政府,然后再变成为联邦直辖区。

这三个州都有各自的岗位,例如吉隆坡是马来西亚的首都,纳闽是国际金融中心,而布城是马来西亚的行政首都。

从2007年开始,每年的联邦直辖区日都会有不同的主题。这些主题代表了人民,团结,发展,和繁荣。然而在2008年开始,这节日也增加了新的仪式,如颁发奖项给予那些为联邦直辖区付出的人民。

 

This year was the 42nd anniversary of the creation of the federal territory, hereby, TagCourse, the KLite would like to wish every students a Happy Federal Territory Day and Happy Holiday to every students from Kuala Lumpur, Labuan, and Putrajaya!

今年已迈入第42届的联邦直辖区日。TagCourse透过这一天预祝各位学生们联邦直辖区日快乐!

About Multimedia University (MMU)

A tertiary education institution set up through Universiti Telekom Sdn Bhd (UTSB), a wholly owned subsidiary of TM, fulfils the noblest of corporate social responsibilities – taking up the challenge of educating the next generation the nation’s leaders and knowledge workers. As the first private university in Malaysia, MMU developed the pioneer model for the successful establishment of private universities in the nation, paving the way for the growth of the private tertiary education sector. As the university at the heart of the MSC, MMU also serves as a catalyst for the development of the high tech ICT industry of the nation, parallel to the Silicon Valley-Stanford model in the United States.
Growing to over 20,000 students in 15 years, MMU has achieved much in a relatively short period of time. The university runs in two campuses, its original campus in the historical city of Melaka, and the campus in Cyberjaya that was opened by the former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed. It has produced 30,523 graduates in its time, and a recent survey demonstrates that 91% of these secure employment within 6 months of the completion of studies. It has also grown an outstanding pool of international students numbering at 4,200 from 77 countries. Establishing itself as a major player in research and development, and maintaining excellent ties with the industry through collaborations and research partnerships, MMU now hosts 13 Research Centres to date, focusing in the niche areas of nanotechnology, microsystems, biometrics, virtual reality, microwave and telecommunications, engineering, photonics, advanced robotics and business.
Through an organisation-wide policy of prudent spending and careful budgeting, the university successfully achieved financial independence within the first 3 years of its founding, and continue to be sustainable and financially healthy to this day. This is in spite of a recent infrastructural expansion in both its campuses during the period of 2006 till present, with the completion of the Phase 3 of development in the Melaka Campus and Phase 2 of development in the Cyberjaya Campus.


Cyberjaya Campus
As part of TM’s initiative to further develop the ICT industry in the nation as a whole, MMU serves to fulfil the nation’s human resource needs as it grows into a knowledge economy. The establishment of MMU as a research university also serves to benefit the nation’s ICT industry to be a creator and not just a consumer of technology. Through the establishment of a local private university, the nation can train its required human resources within its borders, a sound strategy from the economic management perspective.
MMU’s continued growth and sustainability is a clear indication of TM’s strong commitment towards the development of the field of education and research in the nation.

Melaka Campus
The campus stands on a 52-acre piece of land strategically located in the vicinity of serene residential areas, booming industrial areas, booming industrial sites and scenic Ayer Keroh tourist spots.
